ro >> steve: and now, here he is, ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh my goodness! look at that crowd! looking good! [ cheers and applause ] looking good, in the neighborhood! hey, welcome, everybody. welcome to "the tonight show!" this is it baby! [ cheers and applause ] you made it! you're here! well the big story is still former fbi director, james comey's testimony yesterday.
and i saw that trump's lawyer responded with a statement that was filled with typos and even misspelled the word "president." [ laughter ] trump was like, "did he forget the 'z?' [ laughter ] because i do that. it's a common mistake." [ laughter and applause ] forget the z? no. during his testimony comey said that he had a friend leak his memos to "the new york times" to get a special council appointed to the russia investigation. and that's when he found out that if you say the words "leak," "new york times," and "russia." donald trump suddenly appears behind you. he's like oh -- like beetlejuice. hey! [ applause ] comey also said that he's sure trump will be investigated for obstruction of justice. and if trump's found guilty they plan to punish him by still making him be president. [ laughter and applause ] the white house responded to reports that trump lied and said that it's frankly insulting to be asked if he's a a liar. [ laughter ] so, that story again. the white house didn't actually deny that trump is a liar.
that would be insulting. how dare you! [ cheers and applause ] i did not take the cookie from the cookie jar. [ laughter ] >> steve: you took the cookie from the cookie jar! >> jimmy: 'twas he who took the cookie from the cookie jar! [ laughter ] >> steve: not me. >> jimmy: 'twas i. >> steve: couldn't be. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: this week, somebody using a computer inside congress edited the wikipedia page for obstruction of justice by adding donald trump as one of the examples. [ audience oohs ] they also didn't stop there. they also changed some other pages. i'll show you what i mean. for example, for the page on twinkies, they added the only thing in the white house that will last four years. >> steve: wow. [ cheers and applause ] really? >> jimmy: yeah. that's what they -- they changed it. >> steve: meow. that's catty. >> jimmy: next up for "house of cards" they changed it from a a drama to a reality show. >> steve: what? >> jimmy: yeah. [ cheers and applause ] and finally for the page on the number zero, they added how many fs james comey gives right now.
and you -- >> steve: comey -- what? [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: zero. >> steve: zero. >> jimmy: one of the big takeaways from the hearing was that trump tried to get comey to pledge his loyalty to him, which as a lot of people said is inappropriate. well, trump's not backing down. in fact, he just released this video about it. >> hello, this is donald j. trump. if you're in my administration, i need loyalty. i expect loyalty. and in return, you'll get something very, very special. the trump loyalty card. [ laughter ] it gives you all kinds of benefits in all kinds of places like free tickets to amazing ted nugent concerts. a one on one dinner with me that's so fantastic you'll want to go straight home and write a a memo about it. and a 10% deal at all trump hotels. not 10% off. 10% more. if you're loyal, you'll pay it. the trump loyalty card. get one or get fired. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: pay more? this morning trump gave a a speech at the department of transportation and he didn't seem too excited about some of
the projects that were going on. watch this. >> phase one. [ laughter ] okay. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: trump was like, no centerfold. next.
